this is d.w. news live from nato leaders gather in london to mark the military alliance his 70th anniversary as a team. but his criticism of the alliance and in him a rebuke from president so will this spot between the 2 leaders are the shot of the suspects we'll take you live to look at the program where the experts tell the climate summit in madrid that the last decade has been the hottest on record we look at what this means for one farmer in south africa. told goes to.
4:01 pm
repeat. this message taking the time to pull a restless excited about that achievements. and welcome to the program. days later somebody london marking the alliance's 70th anniversary has got off to an acrimonious stuff u.s. president donald trump declared that his country derives at least a benefit from membership the us president also hit out to french president emmanuel macro after the french leaders previous comments that nato had become brain dead later mr trump sat down for bilateral talks with his french counterpart and he sounded more upbeat saying that he intended to make what he described as a lot of progress with president macro. so here's
4:02 pm
a little of what mr trump had to say. our countries are partners in many religious green some have to do with radical islam others and it's always worked out so i look forward to such a real progress of our 1st 25 years and we need to make another record in our next hour maybe hour. for his pots our president my cross-eyed money and the cost of nato was not the only consideration but also that the alliance had to be clear about its core mission. here. and i do believe that in such a simple terms we do be left behind. you see jury duty. in syria your influence on their. friends did you present. he said we. don't. see
4:03 pm
yes everybody gets older we don't seem to be on the phone that might be. so let's go live to our correspondent teri schultz is following this for us and want to know welcome terry so the expected clash between the good french and american presence didn't happen it was a very sort of polite agreement to disagree. that's right we don't know exactly what's happening behind the scenes of course but yes that's true publicly now the 2 men have not been trying to basically out criticize each other about nato or about trade policies or about anything else and that's a very important signal heading into the meeting of nato leaders tomorrow everyone was quite nervous about the disputes between presidents trump and necron and whether that would bleed over and really spoil the mood for what nato so much hoped would be a celebration of it 70th birthday it's interesting as well the other thing to pay.
4:04 pm
isn't my call still very much focused on what he believes the vision should be. well that's true and you could hear president mcclellan was still quite heated about what he was saying he was very angered by the u.s. action to be to address abruptly pull out its troops from northern syria leaving british and french troops exposed on the ground that was not a nato mission but one of the things president mcclellan once is that nato one of the or the only organization where all of these countries sit around the table would start to take a stronger role in court meeting things like this very crucial actions where lives are at stake and that's one of the things that he said in this long criticism in which he called the nato brain dead that he wanted to see the alliance do so i think president record is still going to bring to the leaders' meeting tomorrow a very serious list of things he would like to see the alliance change and president trump will be in favor of some of them and not in favor of others and one
4:05 pm
of the things that may still be discussed today in that in that meeting is the fact that france refused to increase its spending on the costs for nato headquarters germany stepped up and said it would pay the same amount as the u.s. allowing washington to decrease its amount but france refused to even participate in a rebalancing of that budget france's president president there with a shopping list turkey's a president. as prototype process well. that's right president erica one wants all the other allies to agree with it fully on which kurdish groups should be declared as terrorist organizations now some of those groups like the y. puji in northern syria are u.s. allies that's the group that was fighting with the us against isis on the ground and is even currently now continuing to guard some isis prisoners in some parts of
4:06 pm
the country so there's no way that the u.s. is going to declare this a terrorist organization even if it did basically abandon them on the ground to a large extent so president there to one is not going to get that out of the united states and president trump and president air to one it may have some words on the sidelines of the nato meeting as well but that hasn't happened yet so we can remain in suspense as to how that that those kind of discussions are going to go teri schultz the nato meeting in london thank you. and let's go to some of the other stories making news around the world germany's defense minister has and has made an unannounced visit to afghanistan country has thousands of troops stationed on a great comic con about us about nato mission to support afghan peace and stability should be extended beyond its current and date of march next year. from to marry has hit the philippines leaving at least 2 people dead torrential rain and winds topping 150 kilometers an hour brought down trees and electrical posts and forced

4:15 pm
here in germany there's growing suspicion that russia was behind this you german prosecutors in charge of a lot of time central but maybe the media reports say he had close ties to the ukraine and georgian secret service is is and i was killer is a russian national who was arrested shortly after the shooting a german news organization is reporting that prosecutors suspect the killing was contracted by russian state agency moscow has denied any involvement to find out more d.w. chief political editor misspoke to constantine found noughts who speaks on home affairs of germany's green party. this if i'm not the german prosecutor general getting involved would mean that there's a recognition that this is a case that affects the german national interest is that a step that's long overdue well i guess the suspicion that there's some foreign power involved that's in the room for
4:16 pm
a long time. now this decision comes late but. it's not a decision what's actually happened. general prosecutor will look into the stuff now with all the power he has and that's the thing that has to happen now now you're also in the room when parliament gets briefed about exactly such security issues and you've also been a critic of the lack of transparency in this particular case is there a political connection from as far as you can tell. well i don't want to play a suspicion game we have to. look into the case look at all the evidence and we need all the police and intelligence power that is to to solve this. strange case and the bad thing is that 2 weeks went by now the last months and we lost time but it's
4:17 pm
not a prejudgment in any direction. the prosecutor has to take the evidence now and make a case and so we have to look in all directions and but the suspicion that there is some foreign power involved that is in the air for weeks now and i think. the responsible people try to hide away from the problem and those suspicions were firmly pointing towards russia what would have to be the consequences if such a link can be established well in any case the rule. flaw and. or poorly or. is for anyone and for a shot so i don't believe in pointing in any direction now but it is a very serious case and if foreign power is involved serious consequences have to

architects behind london's tate modern. priceless works of art waiting to be displayed. picasso thank man more whole 4000 pieces of state and modern art stored in a basement. now plans to build the museum of the 20th century have been finalized the stock attacks behind hamburg elp the nominee concert hall designed it after years of delay construction is now set to begin its come here and now we can finally present 20th century art appropriately culture ministers have to accept very expensive construction is these days especially if we are to build the right kind of museums for sophisticated art. building costs of already doubled to about $450000000.00 euros before ground was even broken in the 1st draft design the museum was too close to a protected historic church now it's supposed to be built narrow and deep or
4:20 pm
another story below the water level the architect says the costs are no surprise. there. of these works cost billions you have to realize you can't just make a building that's little more than a tin cover. for the prestigious project has long been controversial loved by some mocked by others but many agree that bella needs a modern art museum and the empty space at the cultural forum is a chance to prove that the german capital can build a beacon of the art world. the government has approved about 364000000 euros for the project but not everyone supports it when in force it's for a careful economist the pain threshold has already been surpassed that's why the f.t.p. did not vote with the other parliamentary groups we have to accept the majority of our solution but costs will need to be tracked very closely all sides have agreed to have the budget and the construction work checked twice a year. he hasn't really sure of course ready to convince the critics that this is
4:21 pm
a great building that the science is necessary to present the works properly but given the amount that's been approved it's clear that we and especially those in charge have an extreme obligation to manage costs very very carefully getting guns guns as cost management tools to free and. the museum of the 20th century is expected to open its doors in 7 years time and the developers at least believe the current budget is realistic. meghan repeat no messy have one foot was prestigious ballon d'or awards after being recognized as the best female and male players of the year wrapped in a trial after leading the united states to world cup glory argentina is a messy one a record 6 time after guiding barcelona to another spanish league title would he want to head. rival christie on a run. at mccambridge from deja vu sport can fill in the

details for us welcome mat adds that starts with the 2nd repeat of she always seemed like the clear favorite but why for she was always a clear choice like you say this was a women's world cup year and we often tend to see when these international tournaments happen the star performers from most wanted tend to fare well in the individual awards towards the end of the year and notably perform better at world cup then megan rapinoe she led the u.s. to victory in france was awarded the golden bowl for the tournament's star player and also finished top scorer so she couldn't really have done more in footballing terms to win the award in terms of the world cup it's also probably for hot off the field exploits this year as well she's use that platform after winning that woke up to become a political activist we're seeing make some of her speeches now she campaigned from everything from gay rights to equal pay for women and she really consistently criticized the trump administration in the u.s. as well so she was a she was a star both on the field and off the field and i think this award recognizes that
4:23 pm
ok so as you say she issues she's been something of a communicator so one presumes that she's reactive on social media of course she wasn't actually in attendance at the ceremony she hopes she appeared via video link and thank. everybody for the award but of course she posted to instagram as well and to see a post from her now where she said that the award was really for everybody for all the women out there we're seeing that now and that really falls in line with her belief that you know the power of sport can change the word. she keeps saying that when she's campaigning you know it doesn't matter what your sexual preferences what your color is where you're from what your religion is people should come together to help change the world and much closer vote on the men's side live in a messy wedding for a record 6th time didn't deserve it or had anybody else had the season that messy it had you say well of course they deserved it but such a colossal standards that messy said of the last 10 years there are actually question marks around it this is a man who scored $51.00 goals in all competitions in 50 appearances for bosler this

year for the club to a league and cup domestic double people still saying perhaps he didn't deserve it but yet this was his 6th award we're going to hear from him now that his reaction after winning his 6th bout of door. open i mean it was only imagine a bull for me to think i could win one ballon d'or never mind 6 but it's a pleasure to have so many and be the only one with $61.00 and it's great to have this recognition and that makes me very proud really looking. for this white winning the award this year lots of football fans were backing liverpool's virgil van dyke square club when the champions league as national team did well so what counted against him while he was a bit of a hipster choice virgil van dyke a lot of people wanted to see him win the award because defenders very rarely do just 4 have ever won this individual award. but i think the problem is that offenders is they do a lot the dirty work they very rarely get bored it's themselves you know but nobody did the dirty work better than virgil van dyke as you say he was the driving force
